Helping Out a Local Charity

I’ve been helping out a local charity with preparing tax returns for the needy and underprivileged for the past few weeks and we’ve run into a problem. Each time we have to print out the tax returns for the clients, we have to take the laptop over to the printer to have it printed out.  This takes a while, and it can be a royal pain.  So I have suggested setting up a small print server so that the laptops on the WLAN can easily print.  My initial set-up looks encouraging: I have set up a Raspberry Pi as a little print server, and have successfully printed from one of the laptops.  With some security measures and other set-up, the other laptops that the tax preparers are using will be able to use this print server, too.
